Daytime road closures set for Grantham improvement works

Improvement works to replace worn out carriageway in Grantham will start later this month.

Works along Belton Lane, between Hill Avenue and Harrowby Lane, will start on Monday, August 14.

The junctions of Hill Avenue and Harrowby Lane will also be included as part of the resurfacing works.

For the duration of the resurfacing works, a complete daytime road closure of Belton Lane, between Hill Avenue and Harrowby Lane, will be in place from 7.30am to 6pm each day.

The total programme of works is expected to last for two weeks, subject to reasonable weather conditions.

Traffic management will be removed over the weekend, and access to properties will be maintained throughout the works; however, access may be limited depending on where work is taking place.

The signed diversion routes for the closure will be via A607, B1174, A52, B6403 High Dyke and Londonthorpe Lane and vice versa.

HGVs can access Alma Park Industrial Estate via Harrowby Lane from the B6403 High Dyke.

There will also be no access from Hill Avenue on to Belton Lane for the duration of the works, as well as no access from Harrowby Lane to Belton Lane when the Harrowby Lane junction is being resurfaced. The diversion route will be altered accordingly during this portion of the project.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Member for Highways, said: “We’ve recently had several local people log faults on our online portal, highlighting the need for repairs to Belton Lane.

“As a result, I’m pleased to say we’ll be carrying out works to replace road material that is nearing the end of its serviceable life along the road.”
